Accountants' R&D Workshop
Free workshops for accountancy practices
Tax accountants are invited to book a free R&D tax credits workshop
RandDTax offers free workshops for accountancy practices to address the issue that many accountancy practices could do more to recognise where R&D is being done by their clients.
Are any of your clients already claiming R&D tax credit relief in the UK? If you answered “NO” are you sure you are not missing R&D that is being done by your clients? If you answered “YES” are you confident they have claimed the full value of their qualifying R&D spend?
Our experience is that many companies are still under-claiming or not claiming the R&D tax credits they are entitled to. Sometimes this is because they are simply unaware of the R&D scheme or maybe HMRC has discouraged them or the detailed HMRC guidelines have put them off. This is not because HMRC is doing a bad job, they have tried to keep it simple and are very helpful, but sometime just reading the guidance or taking an HMRC’s officer’s free advice is insufficient because the nature of the company’s R&D is not obvious and therefore more work is needed to uncover the scope of their R&D claim.
To help address this - we offers free Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops for individual accountancy firms.
The workshops are held in your offices, designed for audiences of between 1 and 15 people. They last between 1.5 and 2 hours depending on questions and the format is interactive. The focus is mainly on the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) R&D scheme which is due to be altered after a period of consultation.
The aim of the workshop is to help you and your colleagues to:
- Understand the new R&D claims template for SME’s due to be introduced by HMRC sometime in 2016/17.
- Better identify where your clients or prospects are performing qualifying R&D.
- Get a better understanding of how to claim and the record keeping requirements for R&D claims.
- Understand and clear up some myths and misconceptions which surround R&D tax credits.
- Discuss issues that trigger HMRC investigations, how to handle them and how to avoid them through compliance.
- Understand the R&D claims process through looking at some of our case studies.

We have worked with RandDTax to provide our clients with specialist advice and support in claiming R&D tax relief and tax credits. As a result our more innovative clients have made successful R&D claims, which has helped to fund their investment in R&D.

With such a valuable HMRC incentive available we highlight the relevance of R & D to our clients and invite them to work with Linda of RandDTax to review their position and submit claims. Linda has been instrumental in securing the R&D Tax relief for a number of our clients in a timely and professional manner and I would highly recommend her services to any client who is eligible for such relief.
